SOURCE: my Pen drive is KINGSTON DTI/8GB. And not geting

Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health

I have one 32GB Kingstone Pendrive & I have store on a data of above 1 gb but When It reconnect to PC it's show the only empty folder, so please send me solution of the same...


It’s difficult to give you an exact fix without having your pen drive in hand and at a computer, but I will give you some things to check for:

1) Does the pen drive have a read – write protection enabled? If so turn it off.

2) Make sure your windows explore has the folder view options set so that you cans see file extensions. This will definitely come in to play if the files on your pen drive are not common files. e.g. (ms word)

3) No the bad news!!! There are many reports of the 32GB Kingstone pen drive being FAKE. If you do a google search you will see many consumer complaints.

Respectfully,

Write protection


Get this program:
http://www.4shared.com/file/72797673/93a74bfa/UsbWriteProtect.html

You might need to get winrar from http://www.rarlab.com/
to open the rar file.

Extract all the files to a new folder, run the exe file and click the or disable Radio button and close the program.

Now remove the pen drive and plug it back in to the USB slot, Now open my computer and try to create a new folder in the pen drive, you can't. You get an error. That's what you wanted right? :-)

HTH,
